Dad's bedroom is also getting a makeover. It starts with the walls being painted a dark, dramatic blue. Designer Kelli Kaufer choose a color palette that is both comforting and masculine. An old dresser is revived with glossy black paint and new knobs. The dresser is then transformed into an entertainment center when shelving units purchased at a discount store are painted the same glossy black and stacked on top. In the corner, simple balloon shades topped with pleated valances and floor-to-ceiling drapes make the most out of the windows. A hanging light and slipcovered chair turn the corner into a cozy reading nook.
Paint $37, entertainment center $35, window treatments $81, hanging light $23, chair $64 and accessories $48
